My background is in Civil Engineering but now I let my creativity loose in paint ,mainly acrylics.However, I love texture so I often incorporate collage into my paintings. This is usually something I’ve collected that has particular relevance to the painting.I take lots of photos and these form reference material for my artwork I’ll collect local newspapers, shells, receipts, menus etc which will find their way into the finished piece, this year has been a little different though.
Recently I’ve been influenced by artist David Tress and Kurt Jackson and now I find my landscapes have more layers and therefore depth. All of them are deeply personal.
Normally I paint with the other ladies in This Painting Malarkey who provide support and encouragement and much entertainment . I’m greatly looking forward to when we can get back together again.
